Category Description for All About Spelling:

All About Spelling was specifically designed for homeschoolers and tutors with scripted lessons that take the guesswork out of teaching. It has a bunch of helpful features great for one-on-one instruction. All About Spelling takes a multisensory approach so that the student can be successful in spelling regardless of his particular learning style. The program can be customized for each student, with daily review of concepts the individual needs to cover. For each level, you will need the Teacher Manual, student Materials packet and either the Basic or Deluxe Interactive Kit. The Interactive Kit components are used with all levels of the program but are NOT included in the Teacher Manuals or Student Material Packets so you will need to purchase one of them initially as you begin the program. For the teacher, the lessons are scripted for pick-up-and-go daily usage, with plenty of teaching tips built into the lesson right where you need them. Take a little time to read about 10 pages to familiarize yourself with the programs approach, punch out and sort the materials provided, and youre ready to roll!

The key to this program is learning phonograms, which are the sounds that a letter or letter combination make. Using this approach, after learning his phonograms, a student knows what his choices are for spelling that particular sound. Different researchers have come up with different numbers of phonograms that exist in the English language. The phonograms used here are based on the work of neurologist Dr. Samuel Orton and psychologist Anna Gillingham and includes 72 phonograms that the student learns and uses over the 7 levels. Each level includes a teacher book and a student materials packet. The Interactive Kits contain items used with all 7 levels, including divider cards, durable color-coded phonogram tiles, and optional peel-and-stick magnets used with the phonogram tiles so that they can be used on a magnetic board as well as a level surface. Instructions for downloading the Phonogram Sounds App from the publishers website are included. The only other items youll need are an index card box (unless you choose the Deluxe Interactive Kit) and lined notebook paper. Levels are not related to grade levels, but rather skill levels (our suggested grade levels are just a rough guide of where many students will be). Each book contains around 25 steps, or lessons. Some of the major concepts covered in each level are mentioned below. 400-450 words are specifically covered in each level, but remember that these are really example words; the program is giving the student the tools to spell any word using the phonogram approach.

In Level 1, students first learn the 26 most basic phonograms corresponding to the letters of the alphabet. Unlike phonics programs, which tend to teach short vowel sounds and hard consonants sounds first, All About Spelling teaches all possible sounds for each phonogram. For instance, the letter (and phonogram) A can make a short A sound (apple), a long A sound (acorn), and the "ah" sound (water). Phonograms are shown on yellow Phonogram Cards in the student materials packet with the letter or letter combination on the front. On the back are the sounds made by that phonogram, and a key word with that sound. Student or teacher can also listen to the pronunciation on the Phonogram Sounds App by clicking on the color-coded phonogram; after the initial letters, phonograms are grouped here and elsewhere in the program according to vowel and consonant "teams". After the phonograms are learned, oral exercises are included in the book to ensure that the student can discriminate the sounds in a word and identify the phonogram that he hears. Another exercise has the teacher dictate a sound from a Sound Card (red) to ensure that the student can write the phonogram that is spoken. Key Cards (blue) are used to highlight definitions or spelling rules. Word Cards (green) contain words used to test the students understanding; the student either spells the words using the phonogram tiles or writes the words on paper.

While this may sound complicated, the teacher book couldnt be easier to follow. Goals for each step are shown at the beginning of each step, as well as specific materials needed. Review begins every lesson, and the concepts and words being reviewed are based on areas that the student needs practice. Pictures of the particular cards or tiles used in the lesson are shown at the point of use in the book. Lessons have just the right amount of scripting so the teacher is never at a loss for what to say or do next. Additional words for practicing a just-learned concept are also given. Teaching tips and side notes are right where you would expect them. A cardstock Progress Chart shows the students advancement through the steps of each level; upon completion the student gets a suitable-for-framing Certificate of Achievement.

This spelling program is designed to be used with students who can read at a beginning level (able to read consonant-vowel-consonant words and words with blends such as stop and fast). Also, keep in mind that this program focuses entirely on spelling and does not include vocabulary.

This spelling program is unique in its multisensory approach to teaching spelling, and may help students succeed who might otherwise struggle. Kudos to author Marie Rippel for putting together such a well-designed program for student and teacher alike. ~ Bob

Packets contain phonogram cards, sound cards, key cards, word cards, syllable tags, syllable division rules, word banks, Jail for Rule Breakers, progress chart, certificate of achievement, stickers, and other items specific to that level.

My son was in public school for K and 1st grade. He had spelling words but there was no rhyme or reason. When I decided to homeschool him I didn't really know where to start. I found All About Spelling and have loved every lesson. I started with level 1 even though he was in second grade and I am glad I did. He now has a great foundation of how and why words are spelled the way they are.

Wonderful books. My son is finally learning spelling!

LOVE this spelling program for my child who does not memorize facts/spelling words well. Highly recommend if you have a kid in the same situation. He can even spell words successfully that he has never written before! I count that as a huge success.

I love All About Spelling. It has helped my kids with special needs learn rules to help them figure out how to spell new words. They had difficulty with other programs that teach memorization.
Kellie T on Aug 18, 2020
My favorite spelling program. it actually explains the rules so you can apply to other words and not just 10 words at a time.

Rebecca M on Jun 21, 2020
I have been homeschooling since 2004 and am "finishing up" with my last child. I love the All About Reading All About Spelling series. I've tried MANY in my years but this is truly the most complete and thorough program out there. The child really absorbs and learns the lessons (even when they don't realize it!).
Jennifer O on Jun 17, 2020
This is the next level in the All About Spelling series. Levels 1-3 have helped my struggling speller excel both in spelling and reading, so it's only natural we try the next one.
Robert T on Jun 9, 2020
Love All About Spelling. Great for my daughter with dyslexia. Finished Levels 1-3 this past year. (She's in 4th grade.)

Great Spelling program. Learn rules for spelling. Spelling words are organized in groups that reinforce rules and phonetics.
Adam T on Apr 29, 2020
Ready for next level. Loving it. Using it with 2 children and I'm able to easily use the same curriculum slightly different for 2 very different children.
Rebekah L on Apr 29, 2020
We love All About Spelling.
Sandra B on Apr 10, 2020
Love this program, we've used 1-3 already, so this is the next logical step. It's easy to use and my son loves the "boardwork" component with the letter tiles. The flashcards make reviewing and review games easy to implement.
Jessica B on Apr 3, 2020
I have used all 3 yrs up until now and it is quick, easy, and PACKED with great information! I am learning so much along with my kiddo!
Christy K on Mar 29, 2020
Easy to use curriculum, great for all learning types. Built in review of spelling rules and words. Wish I had this when I was a kid.

All about spelling is by far the best spelling program out there.

Another good buy
We have used All About Spelling from the start (partnered with All About Reading). My boys both love it. The lessons are short, fit a theme, which makes reinforcement easier than jumping about. I like an actual spelling program vs. copying sentences and hoping the spelling sticks, and this is a good fix for that. As far as level four goes, it is set up similarly to level 3 with writing stations and longer sentences for dictation.
The only thing is at this point, and with level three, the letter tiles and such are no longer a big hit. Both boys hate setting it up, keeping it neat, and find spelling with an expo marker much more enjoyable. The manipulative a are still great to have visually, but we barely use them anymore and they take up a huge white board while still looking cluttered on it. Unless your learner loves playing with letter tiles, at this point I believe it isn't really necessary to puchase.
A typical week for us looks like this: go over the section, look at new words, maybe practice them on day one of the lesson goes well. Day two and three is writing words and two to three sentences and a writing station. Day four is review from the word cards, writing words and sentences and a writing station. Friday depends. If the lessons went well we do a final out loud review and may write a sentence or two, if not, we repeat Thursday and do the lesson reviews the following week. That's what's great about homeschool. If we get it, we move on, if we don't, we keep trying.

making a perceptible difference
In our family we have those who seem to be born spellers and those who are not. Both have benefited from the methods thought in the program, though at different paces. It is a bit teacher intensive, yet laid out very well and is easy to follow. I have to say that I have learned a few things too!

Love this series
This program is great for my dyslexic daughter! I wish I had this program when I taught in a traditional classroom. It explains WHY words are spelled the way they are. In the past I taught it as rules to memorize. This is a MUCH better system!!
